As part of your purchase transaction, your conveyancing solicitors will submit searches on your behalf. Essentially, the searches are used to ensure the integrity of the property you are purchasing and that there are no issues which may come to haunt you in the future. See our blog on ‘The Importance of Conveyancing Searches’ for more information on what these entail by following the link, here
At MG Legal, our team of solicitors in Preston understand that nobody wants to get into an argument with their neighbour – who else are you going to borrow milk for your morning brew from? Unfortunately, however, these matters do arise and are something that our solicitors in Preston encounter on a regular basis. 
With the Solicitors Regulation Authority placing increasing demand for transparency within, not just conveyancing, but the legal profession as a whole, there is now to be a new legal helpline.  
 
Introduced by UNU Group, the helpline is in place for individuals to contact for impartial advice, if they are left feeling confused by their conveyance, or any other legal matter ( - something that would not happen, should you choose MG Legal’s conveyancing team to act on your behalf). 
A red, dial-up old-fashioned telephone, with 'Hotline' written on a yellow sticky note, stuck to the 'phone.
The Jiff Lemon Case (officially known as Reckitt & Colman Ltd v Borden Inc [1990] 1 All E. R. 873) is a leading House of Lords decision (now the Supreme Court!) on the tort of Passing Off. 
 
Passing Off is a common law tort created by judges. Passing off is a type of unfair compensation claim made by holders of registered trademarks to stop or prevent others from copying the mark or packaging of a certain product. The owner of the trademark can receive remedies such as damages or injunctions. 
The Property Redress Scheme is essentially the complaints department for the tenant and Landlord world. Estate Agents and Letting Agents dealing with residential properties in England and Wales must be a part of the scheme and if a customer is complaining about a service which cannot be resolved between themselves and the Agents then they can complain to the Scheme. 
If approaching your property solicitors in Preston to buy/sell a property which has only been registered in the current proprietor’s name for six months or less, you will be advised on the six month rule. 
As your trusted property solicitors, we understand that the ultimate goal is to get onto the property ladder and become the proud owner of your new home.  
 
Our Preston solicitors, (all of whom by the way own their own property, and completely understand how exciting it is to get the key and have that housewarming party asap), are on hand to make this happen in the smoothest fashion possible.  
 
However, there may be other obstacles standing in the way of this. 
“Quic quid plantatur solo solo credit.” Nope the Conveyancing Solicitors Preston have not finally lost the plot; that is Latin for (roughly) “Whoever owns the land at the bottom of the lake owns everything up to the sky”. 
At MG Legal, your Lancaster law firm, we are proud to be accredited by the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Standard (CQS). You may, however, ask what this means and why it is important? 
Ever seen the Despicable Me when the Minions start saying “blah blah blah”? If you haven’t then the reference will probably make as much sense to you as some of the terminology used in Conveyancing. If you have then you’ll know that when Solicitors start talking then often, they may as well be saying “blah blah blah” for all then sense it makes! Well never fear for a (wanna be) Superhero is here to explain the terminology of the contract to you (ha! Bet you thought it was going to be something way more exciting!)
